If you were out on Long Island from the mid-70s to the mid-80s, your best bet for adventurous and eclectic live music was My Father’s Place. The Roslyn, NY club hosted an array of genre-leading talents: prog monsters, folk rock legends, reggae icons, jazz fusioneers, punk pioneers and beyond. Lucky for us, many of these shows were broadcast over the WLIR-FM airwaves — and drawing from that deep archive, the latest Unearthed bootleg mix extravaganza cherrypicks some choice My Father’s Place performances from the club’s heyday.
